Hi Guy's!
Yesterday while browsing thru the malware posts,i've came across a recomended "flash drive desinfector tool!Since i have a few floating around the office and everybody uses them,i thought to myself;Good idea to have a tool like this.After i downloaded it from the recomended site,my Panda A/V warned me about the software and urged me to delete it,as it contains a tracking program!

The software was downloaded from"www.tech Support foroum.com/sec tools/sUbs",the name of the software:Flash Desinfector exe.
Message from Panda A/V:Tracking program "application/Nir.Cmd.A

I didnt know wether it's safe or not,so i followed Pandas advice and deleted it.Maybe someone knows the program and can tell me if it is safe do download!

Cheers
zorba


Btw:My PC is clean

Its not a virus, its a command line utility. The maker of the tool is sUBs. One of his tools has helped clear thousands of computers and uses the same utility. They flag it because of their use of heuristics as do a couple others.

Im going to close this as to not get discussion going on in this forum :)
